The Meaning of a Dream

19 Jul

Maybe I’m watching too much True Blood or talking amongst the people close to me about evil spells and witches, despite the fact that I’m nowhere near to being capable of doing any of such things. But lately I’ve been dreaming about people who I’ve been in relationships with in my past – and no, they aren’t sexual. It’s starting to freak me out that people who I haven’t thought about in years are popping up in my dreams. I believe that there’s a reason for everything, but what that is – I haven’t figured it out yet.

This is the second dream in less than a month that a second ex of mine, this time it was an ex-boyfriend, has popped up into my dreams sort of meandering about.

So when I got to the computer, I wanted to look up the dream mood and what it interprets.

These are some interpretations I got from DreamMoods.com under Ex Boyfriend:

To see an old ex-boyfriend from childhood in your dream, refers to a freer, less encumbered relationship. The dream serves to bring you back to a time where the responsibilities of adulthood (or marriage) did not interfere with the spontaneity of romance. You need to recapture the excitement, freedom, and vitality of youth that is lacking in your present relationship.

To dream that your ex-boyfriend is giving you advice about your current relationship, suggests that your unconscious is telling you not to repeat the same mistakes that you had made with this ex-boyfriend.

To dream that you are being massaged by your ex-boyfriend, suggests that you need to let go of some of that defensiveness that you have been putting forth as a result of a past relationship. You may have put up a wall or armor around you. You need to learn to trust people again. If you dream that your ex-boyfriend is dressed in a suit at a hospital, then suggests that you have come to terms with that relationship and have completed the healing process.

Also, under Ex were these interpretations:

To dream about your ex-boyfriend/girlfriend or ex-husband/wife, that you and your ex are fighting or that you and your ex got back together again, suggests that something or someone in your current life is bringing out similar feelings you felt during that relationship with your ex. The dream may be a way of alerting you to a similar behavioral patterns in your current relationship. What you learn from that previous relationship, may need to be applied to the present one so that you do not repeat the same mistakes. Alternatively, you may be reflecting on the positive experiences and good times that you shared with your past love.

I don’t dream much, but when I do they are really cloudy and sometimes filled with people I don’t know. It gets hard to judge what a dream can mean because everything can have double meanings. My ex who appeared in my dream last night is someone I really haven’t spoken to over six years and not anyone I have thought of. Usually sometimes we think about our exes from time to time – or the ones that mattered and wonder what their lives are up to now. I’m not saying he didn’t matter. I was a teenager when I dated him and we dated a very short time. I was at a very different point in my life than where I am today. It was just super awkward to have him pop up in my dream. To think out of all of these years I have never bumped into him on the streets but somehow this is where I find him – what a way to kill my privacy dude. Ha!
